I don't try that...it results in a collision midair that can be hurtful because of size difference

Ours are super good about sitting for food, but tossing food isn't in our repertoire.  I love Cassies sit for a treat.  She sits and if you back up she scoots on her butt to keep the same distance.  She will scoot 3-4 feet never raising her tush off the floor!

I've never shown a dog, but I wondered if that was part of her training?  Not to break a sit similar to sit/stay?  It's funny to watch.

You and DW suspected this:

Newly released records from the U.S. Secret Service indicate the White House didn’t accurately convey the facts about attacks by Major, one of President Joe Biden’s dogs.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporterson March 9, 2021, that the dog “was surprised by an unfamiliar person, and reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual, which was handled by the White House medical unit with no further treatment needed.”

In an email that same day, the Secret Service agent (SA) who was bitten disputed Psaki’s account, the records show.

“Yes I got bit by Major on [redacted] and NO I didn’t surprise the dog doing my job by being at [redacted] as the press secretary just said! Now I’m pissed,” the agent said.

Additionally, an incident report of the bite said it took place after the dog, “without warning or provocation,” barked loudly at and charged the agent.

“Having no time to seek cover from the attack, SA [redacted] turned away from the dog as he bit into [redacted] right leg,” the report says. SA stands for special agent.

“SA [redacted] injury cannot be described in any other term than ‘severe,'” the report states.

The documents also show that Major bit an agent or officer on eight consecutive days, March 1 to March 8, 2021, “causing damage to attire or bruising/punctures to the skin.” Other attacks occurred in February and May of 2021.

“These documents show Major was a dangerous dog and the Biden White House lied about it, placing Secret Service and other White House personnel at needless risk,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “And it seems the Secret Service management seemed more concerned about managing press relations than taking care of its agents. In fact, the agency is still withholding information about this mess
